Slayed to the gawds. That's all I could think of when an image popped of Chanel Iman striking a reminiscent Josephine Baker pose popped up in my inbox. Here, and as always, Chanel Iman is just…fabulous. 

Shot for the Violet Grey digital publication, photographer Ben Hassett wanted to capture Iman channeling three beauty icons, including Bianca Jagger, Linda Evangelista and Josephine Baker. 

In her Violet Grey interview, Iman talks about how she "missed her prom to go to the MET ball" and why she thinks women usually feel their most beautiful selves at the age of 25. She also hints at what she'd like to do next her in career (no more modeling, perhaps?)
